Gourd Quilt

The OGS is creating a gourd  quilt/wall hanging like the one pictured below.  It is  a fundraiser for the Society and we’ll be selling tickets for it to be raffled at the Show in October.

We need 110 squares 4” x 4” decorated.   They can be painted, wood burned, carved, etc.   We only have about 30—40 right now.

We have scheduled a painting session at the Sunbury Community Library, 44 Burrer  Drive, Sunbury, Ohio 43074.
DATE:    June 25, 2022.   TIME:   10:00 am to 12:00 pm
SUPPLIES:   Will be provided.   If you have your own brushes that might be helpful.
It will be fun and an opportunity to meet other members!

We will be putting it together during the month of July and will begin selling raffle tickets  by August 1.

Thank you Linda Rose for organizing this wonderful "work day" for our gourd quilt project. Several members gathered at Sunbury Library to turn in their gourd squares, and to paint some more. Brochures and fliers were also available for pick-up. A few yard signs were distributed to be put up in September in Sunbury. Still looking for a few people to put up a few yard signs in Delaware. We can't wait to see the finished quilt! ... See MoreSee Less
